Notebook: Timberwolves 102, Grizzlies 88


Jim Beilby, for NBA.com
Posted Wed Apr 02, 2014 11:36 PM - Updated Wed Apr 02, 2014 11:39 PM

THE FACT: Kevin Love got his third triple-double of the season and helped Minnesota snap a six-game home losing streak to Memphis.

THE LEAD: Despite the fact that the Minnesota Timberwolves (37-37) are all-but-eliminated from playoff contention and despite the fact that the Memphis Grizzlies (44-31) have taken care of business against teams with losing records, it was the Wolves that came away with the victory, defeating Memphis, 102-88.

Love led the Wolves in all facets of the game as he tallied 24 points, 16 rebounds, and 10 assists. Love recovered from a slow start in opening minutes of the game, shooting 8-for-11 in the final three-and-a-half quarters. Ricky Rubio also shrugged off a slow start, scoring 13 of his fourteen points in the third quarter. And backup center, Ronny Turiaf, who has missed the last 19 games with a bone bruise on his right knee, played crucial minutes and gave Minnesota a swarming, defensive presence that has been sorely lacking in the last month and a half.

Marc Gasol and Courtney Lee led the way for the Grizzlies, scoring 18 and 14 points, respectively. With the loss, Memphis's playoff position becomes more precarious. Depending on how Phoenix does tonight, Memphis will either be in a two-way or three-way tie for the 8th spot in the West and while Memphis owns the tiebreaker over Phoenix, the tie-break picture is much murkier against Dallas.

QUOTABLE: "Just a quality win against a quality team. It is nice to see us play a team that grinds it out and we were able to do the same thing back to them, defend them well and executed offensively. Thirty-one assists. And I thought Gorgui (Dieng) and Ronny (Turiaf) were terrific at protecting the basket. And, of course, Kevin had a triple-double. It was a nice solid win."
-- Minnesota coach Rick Adelman

THE STAT: Minnesota shot 53.1 percent from the floor, significantly above their 44.3 percent season average. And they moved the ball well, accumulating 31 assists and building a 20-9 advantage in fast break points.

TURNING POINT: After a slow start by both teams, Minnesota built a lead with a 16-2 first half run and they expanded their lead to 18 in the third quarter with strong defense and efficient shooting. But it was their response to a 15-6 Memphis run in the fourth quarter that was pivotal. Despite sustaining an ankle injury in the third quarter and having the team announce that his return was questionable, Rubio was able to re-enter the game in the fourth quarter and help give Minnesota a comfortable margin of victory.

QUOTABLE II: "It was one of those games, end of a road trip, (when you) can't feel your legs, trying to push through it. It just felt like we were running in the mud. We have to put this one behind us. Every game counts, but this one really hurt and we need to put it behind us."
-- Memphis forward Zach Randolph

HOT: In the third quarter, Rubio tallied 13 points, four assists, and a pair of steals.

NOT: Mike Conley, Randolph, and Tayshaun Prince combined to shoot 7-for-32 (21.9 percent) from the floor.

GOOD MOVE: Minnesota made the decision to double-team Randolph. The strategy seemed effective as Randolph was 1-for-8 from the floor and seemed frustrated all night.

BAD MOVE: In the final minute of the game, backup Memphis center, Kosta Koufos tried to dunk over a pair of Minnesota players. Who he didn't see was Corey Brewer who came from behind to deliver a highlight-worthy block.

NOTABLE: With a loss tonight, Minnesota would have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs for the 10th straight year. They last reached the playoffs in 2004, when Kevin Garnett was still wearing a Wolves uniform and Love was a high school freshman. ...Minnesota has lost five of their last eight games and in their five recent losses they have given up an average of 118.6 points on 52.8 percent shooting. ... The Memphis Grizzlies recalled guard Jamaal Franklin from their D-league affiliate, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, today. He was drafted 41st overall in the 2013 NBA Draft and has played in 19 games for Memphis this season. But he was not with the team for tonight's game. ... Minnesota rookie center Dieng was named Western conference Rookie of the Month for March after averaging 8.6 points on 61.3 percent (46-for-75) shooting, and 8.3 rebounds in 14 games. In six starts, Dieng has averaged 12.7 points and 14.0 rebounds per game and tallied five double-doubles.

UP NEXT: For Minnesota, Friday @ Miami, Saturday @ Orlando, Tuesday vs. San Antonio. For Memphis, Friday vs. Denver, Sunday @ San Antonio, Wednesday vs. Miami.
